He completed his doctorate degree from St. Louis University in 2011 and earned board certification in Geriatrics through the American Physical Therapy Association. During his career he has had many opportunities to educate people of all ages in principles of health, wellness, and establishment of positive, life changing habits. In addition, Wingard has had the unique opportunity to incorporate his passion for music and his expertise as a multi-instrumentalist into both individual and group treatment sessions.
Wingard has proven his effectiveness over the years to motivate and inspire people with his music. For over 50 years he has been studying the flute and has been influenced by such masters as Jean Pierre Rampal, James Galway, and Hubert Laws. In addition to the flute, Wingard has been an avid student and performer of the harmonica, penny whistle, and various other wind instruments including the Scottish Highland Bagpipes.
With his extensive background in health, wellness, and training principles as well as the unique ability to communicate through his diverse musical background, Wingard can customize an entertaining and educational age appropriate program, which will be well received by your student population, employee group, corporate colleagues, or church congregation.
